Description: Patent for a new and improved cotton buncher. This design utilizes a wheel that "is to press down the plants and weeds that are to be destroyed, so that the plows, whether used along with the wheel or afterward, will cover them up with fresh earth, and thus assist in destroying them, and at the same time cultivating the plants to be retained and facilitating the subsequent thinning process" (lines 62-68).
